Ordering first pair of scrub pants ???

  1. Hi everybody,

    I went to the AllHeart site and found what look to be a nice pair of white scrub pants that I would like to order. My question is I'm not sure what size to get as this is my first pair of scrubs and I don't know if scrubs normally run bigger or smaller than normal pants.

    The maker of the pants is "Barco". According to the size chart based on my waist I'm a large and based on my hips I am a Small, so I think I'll just stick with a Medium. But I am also 5'7" so I don't know if I should get the regular medium or a "Tall" Medium.

    Please let me know what you think and if you have ordered Barco pants before or how scrubs run in general.

    Thanks much,

    I'd go for tall. I have a friend your height who uses tall.

    I've found scrub sizes to get a little weird. If you're buying the elastic waistedy typed, large might be best because after a few hours they will pinch even if they're a little snug. I used to wear that type, but have since gone on to drawstring. Love them.

    Just make sure if you go to unisex pants you use the right size chart. I ordered a bunch of mediums, and it turned out they were men's medium, and I couldn't tie them tight enough.

    Thanks CyberKat.

    These pants have elastic in the back and a drawstring. It is really hard to find drawsting pants. Most are elastic which would drive me bonkers because elastic is usually tight and when you get hot or sweaty they pinch and itch.

    I will go for the tall. I can always hem them if I need to.

    Thanks much,

    Other great sites are Tafford, Cotton Scrubs, and Smartscrubs -- there are many great scrub pants out there -- I started with Cherokee boxer (elastic) and still love them -- but I now favor drawstring.

    I have a long list of good scrub sites, (anyone) PM me if you want it.

    BTW...Barco tops tend to run a little big, I find Landau pants to be more true to size.
